Outline the reasons why an organisation should establish health and safety targets

There are several reasons for an organisation to set health and safety targets:

  • Evidence of management commitment
  • To prioritize and focus on important health and safety issues
  • To motivate staff by giving them something tangible to aim for and to encourage their ownership



  • To enable performance with standards to be measured and to identify improvements that have been made
  • To enable trends to be identified
  • To meet the standards of the health and safety management systems
  • To highlight the important part that targets can play in facilitating the measurement and review of performance.
